Email Just A Portion Of A Spreadsheet


Q. I regularly e-mail an Excel worksheet that includes a monthly sales report to a staff member in another city. I would rather not send her the entire worksheet, just the monthly sales portion. Is there some way I can do that?

A. If you’re using a version later than Excel 2000 and running the Office Suite with Outlook, the answer is yes and the process is easy. Begin by highlighting the portion of the worksheet you want to send and then click on the Mail Recipient button.

If that button is not available on your toolbar, go to File and Send To , prompting the screen above.

Click on Mail Recipient to bring up this Outlook e-mail screen at right:

Fill in the e-mail address information and a short note, if you wish, and send.
